(meta-review) I don’t play hentai games, but…

I don’t play hentai games.  That’s not a rule of mine.  I would if I wanted to.  I even hopefully, but half-heartedly, checked a few out once.  Just for some reason they don’t do it for me.

However, this short review of an adult “video novel” video game, I guess written in Ren’Py, struck me as kind of interesting:

Played the game and I have to say I liked it was pretty good for a non-professional title, good enough for me to personally go through the game and get all the endings to see the harem ending and the alien invasion ending, keep up the good work and would like to see another…

The author seems to have removed the game from circulation, so there’s no telling if my curiosity would have gotten the better of me.

I don’t think my uninterest in adult VN games stems from prudery.  Once I started to write a script for a porn film, based on the theory that the form does not fully explore the options available to it.  The opening scene went like this:

A man is driving his girlfriend home to introduce to Mom.  On the way, for whatever reason — I forget why — she decides to…  well, I try to keep it clean on this blog.  But anyway, the car is swerving around, it drives past a cop, and about the time it’s all over, they get pulled over.

The couple regain their composure late, with the result that the cop sees everything.

COP:  Do you know why I pulled you over?

MAN:  Uh, well — I —

COP:  Step out of the car, please.

MAN:  Geez…

COP:  Not you.  Her.

The cop brings the woman — of course, these are clearly all the kind of people who star in this kind of movie; it’s not meant to be convincing — brings the woman around to the back of the car, has her put her hands on the car, and the camera cuts back and forth between that and the man sitting in the driver’s seat, who keeps looking in the rearview.

MAN:  What is taking him so long?

The cop wraps up.  The woman returns to the passenger seat.  The cop returns to the driver’s side window.

COP:  I’m giving you a ticket for reckless driving.

MAN:  Three hundred dollars!?

–I never got further with the project.  I don’t know… I guess I’m only interested in these things in theory.

“Alien invasion” raises some theoretical questions.  Not even the xenological issue…  just wondering about the plot.  Choose one way and the story ends up in a harem:  choose another and aliens invade.

Robot Chicken gets the last word here.  As is so often the case.
